Graze - nature delivered

I'm writing this at twenty to three on a Saturday morning, so if you find any spelling mistakes I apologize! I can't sleep so I thought I may as well get something done, and saw my laptop staring at me from across the room so here I am: cold, ill, and in that mood where I'm really tired but however much I try, unable to sleep. But I'm not alone, oh no, I have my good friends - Elton John, Dean Martin, Nancy Wilson, The Ronettes and Bing Crosby to name a few - keeping me company and serenading me with the joyfulness that is Christmas. So far it isn't working, but there's still time I guess...
Anyway, on to the bulk (of sorts) of this post... My Graze box!

I first ordered one of these a few months ago and recently, on a similar night to this in fact (late/feeling sorry for myself, about the time I do most of my online shopping actually, oops) decided that the one thing I needed in my life was not driving lessons, nor a ticket to my Christmas Dance, but in fact a box full of healthy snacks. Yes, it seemed like a fabulous idea at half one in the morning..

I can't moan though, these boxes are great. If you're not aware of them, the general idea is that you create an account on, and the contents of your box is pretty much in your own hands. You sign up, let them know what products in their range you like, or dislike, and they package your box with this information in mind before sending it to you first class - you can even pick which day you want it to be delivered.

The honeycomb flapjack is so nice! Probably not the healthiest though... Oh well!

I think these boxes are really worth it, they cost under £4, and with the code Q2LMB9Y3 you can get one box for free and your next half price. You can always do what I did at first and cancel your deliveries after your free/half price boxes!;)
Again, sorry for the (probable) poor quality of this post, it's now 2.53am and I'm so sleeeepy! Have any of you tried this service before? Did you like what was in your box?Evie x*I saw an advert for on TV today! 22nd Jan*

Hello Hola Bonjour

I've been blogging for a few months now, and felt that it was time that I properly introduces myself. I did a (sort of) introductory post a while ago but it was a bit rubbish if I'm honest and didn't really gibe any information about me at all, so this post will aim to do that!

Okay, if you made it this far then props to you! This is a really long post that most people won't read to love yaaa if you do!;) Also, I'm sorry about the ugly writing, I couldn't work out how to change it so yeah, I'm aware it looks horrible! I'm also aware that this hasn't really given you an insight into 'me', but hopefully a bit of my personality will have come through so you can 'get' me a bit better? If not, that was a waste of 20 minutes, haha!

Hope you enjoyed this/didn't get too bored with it! I'll try to get back to normal posts soon!

Viva Barcelona

As a few of you might know, I went to Barcelona on October for a week with school. It was such a good week and I was so glad I got to spend my birthday with my two favourite girls in the SUN!
It was an art trip so, as expected, we did all the artsy stuff - museums, galleries, sketching etc. But we also had time to ourselves where we could explore the city and shop, eat, sunbathe, whatever we wanted. The weather was SO hot, definitely hotter than everyone was expecting - being on a full coach in 37 degrees for 2/3 hours a day isn't exactly my idea of fun, but we had such a laugh!
I totally forgot to do a post about this trip, I guess because it's a bit different to what I usually blog about. However seeing as I've had no blogging material whatsoever recenly - don't get me wrong I've been shopping, but I always forget to take pictures etc, and I've had no time - I thought I'd let you know about my time in Barcelona!
Here are just a few pictures of what we got up to while we were there!

I absolutely loved Barcelona! Have any of you been? What did you think?
